For the hearing impaired, no worries, it’s captioned.
Indeed, Mr. Lavrov, indeed!
Speaking of, well, the topic. Here’s a never Trump site bemoaning the, well, p###ies in the Repub party, who was supporting Trump, withdrew their support, called for him to step down and whatnot, and, now, are back to backing Trump.
I find this odd. There are people who truly believe Trump is going to destroy the Repub party. I don’t disagree that the Repub party is on the verge of collapse. But, anyone with any sense would know Trump is a symptom, not a cause.
Why is the party on the verge of a collapse? Because dimwitted people who will automatically support the mentioned weasels. Well, read this …..
It is amazing to watch the GOP leadership in Washington, D.C. squeal when they’re faced with the least bit of adversity.
On Friday night, the ‘left’ launched a surprise attack that sent the elite media and elite politicians into scapegoating frenzy. Paul Ryan disinvited Republican nominee Donald Trump from a campaign fundraiser, Sen. Deb Fischer said it would be wise for him to step down, and Rep. Bradley Byrne and Sen. John Thune also told the nominee to step aside.
And now what?
You guessed it. These establishment politicians are re-evaluating their professional political careers and are now re-endorsing Donald Trump.
The comments made by Mr. Trump were disgusting and totally unacceptable under any circumstance. (1/2)

It would be wise for him to step aside and allow Mike Pence to serve as our party’s nominee. (2/2)

Donald Trump should withdraw and Mike Pence should be our nominee effective immediately.
— Senator John Thune (@SenJohnThune) October 8, 2016
Byrne, in his Saturday statement, said Trump “cannot defeat” Clinton and urged him to “step aside and allow” Pence, the Indiana governor, to “lead the Republican ticket.”
But after Sunday’s debate performance and a not so friendly conference call between GOP leaders Monday morning, these three politicians have decided to retreat.
Fischer has since “clarified” her statements saying “I support the Republican ticket, and it’s a Trump-Pence ticket.”
A spokesperson for Byrne has since said that “he will support the Republican ticket on Election Day, as he has pledged to do all along.”
And during an interview with a South Dakota newspaper, Thune said he is voting for Donald Trump. “He has a lot of work to do, I think, to win this election. But I’m certainly not going to vote for Hillary Clinton,” the Republican said.
This is Washington, D.C. folks, plain and simple. These are the men and women who represent your bests interests, with fierce loyalty and devotion.
Now, mind you, Townhall has becoming increasingly Never Trump for months, now. The biggest argument they’ve had is because the Trump movement threatens to tear up the GOP. Those three idiots they wrote about are exemplar as to why this is happening. It isn’t Trump making these weasels, weasels. They are weasels and they helped create Trump.
It’s beyond interesting. There are supposed “conservative” sites who are Never Trump sites. And, they bemoan the fact that the GOP is having such a hard time with Trump. Is Trump a conservative? Well, no, he’s not. He has some conservative attributes, but, he isn’t a conservative. But, then, neither is the GOP leadership. Sure, many in the GOP give lip service to being conservative because of the geography of their constituency. But, actions speak louder than words. Over the last 22 years, the GOP has held the House for 18 of those years. The GOP has held the Senate for 12 of those years, all them overlapping with the House majority years. 8 of those years a Repub held the White House. But, it would be hard to state that in any of those 22 years that our government became more conservative. Indeed, over the past 22 years we’ve seen nothing but a complete devolution in conservative governance. I believe this is inarguable. If one is truly conservative, why would one wish the GOP to remain as is? Do they actually believe that if the GOP had nominated Bush that we’d somehow be better off if he was elected? That the GOP would suddenly be true to their words? That the GOP would suddenly be more conservative?
Look, I get it. There are some who simply despise Trump. But, let’s not pretend that Trump is the one tearing up the GOP. I’ll tell you who is tearing up the GOP, it’s the GOP leadership ……. and they need torn asunder. People in Kansas are sick of them. People in Utah are sick of them. People in Florida are sick of them (well, many of them), people in Oklahoma are sick of them. People in West Virginia are sick of them. They don’t care. They don’t care because the GOP, year in and year out, failed to deliver what they promised. And, they continue to fail, even against a lame-ass lame-duck presidency. Are you kidding me? The GOP holds both houses and the only veto override they can manage is some law about suing Saudi? That’s it? For 22 years they’ve held a strong hand. For 22 years they still can’t play the hand. Heck, for 8 of those years they held 3 aces playing 3 card poker, and still managed to lose.
You guys go ahead and keep cheering for Trump to fail. Bitterly cling to your precious GOP, and keep pretending the GOP is in some sort of opposition to the Dims. Self-delusion works for leftards, it may as well work for you guys.
Again, Mr. Lavrov, spot on!
